Elizabeth Bowen

Theory, Thought and Things

Edited by Jessica Gildersleeve and Patricia Juliana Smith

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Provides new avenues for research in Bowen studies in ways that are concerned primarily with Bowen's perception of writing and narrative
  • Moves away from perceptions of Bowen's writing tied to existing ideological categories, such as viewing her work through a lens of psychoanalysis, modernism, or Irish or British history and which emphasise Bowen's innovation not as central to our understanding of the changes happening in twentieth-century literature and history, but as instead a point of 'difficulty'
  • Recognises Bowen's innovation, experimentation and her impact on her contemporaries and literary descendants
